Except that there's mass distrust of the media now.

The reaction to "It's what plants crave!" wouldn't be to go out and put the wrong stuff on plants, it would be to call out the media on saying something stupid.

sadly its probably the opposite if anything, because its discriminatory and racist to point out the fact blacks, especially sub saharan africans, have substantially lower iq's according to every study done on iq regarding race. ever. to the point they just stopped allowing scientist to discuss the topic.

i mean, we have people pushing shit like "math is racist" now, so yeah. the test is probably easier and we are just seeing what mixing hoards of 60iq retards who breed more than anybody else, with anybody else does to society as a whole. and none of it is by accident, its exactly what the ones pushing it wanted because retards who are happy being slaves to the government are easier to control in many ways.

Why does IQ even matter? Maybe it shouldn't. It doesn't to me certainly. I've never been tested so you could say mine is even "off the charts."

Sub Saharan Africans are adapted to their environments, I to mine. Not just adapted to environment but culture and structure of language. Wouldn't it take them lots of effort to measure my practical prowess as it would take me to measure theirs?

This whole website is devoted to the idea that intelligence itself --- however it is measured --- is (obviously) not enough. Even generally stated political views an hour ago can be bad litmus tests. Everyone is changing and everyone does tolerate hypocrisy in oneself and others to some degree.

Persuasive ability not overall cleverness is where it's at. Getting others' undivided attention is the first difficult step.

IQ measures how well a person understands the world. Persuasive ability only becomes important after you have interacted with the world successfully enough to ensure wellbeing. I.e., Malnourishment prevents walking and talking, making persuasion difficult.

DDDirka 2 points ago +2 / -0

IQ measures how well you are able to think in the abstract, use abstract thought. This is why low IQ people are more prone to violence. It takes abstract thought capability to empathize. Studies on low IQ murderers in prison exhibited no ability to think in the abstract about how their victims might have felt. It wasn't just that they avoided thinking about it, they actually couldn't understand the concept of what another human might feel or think.

VolareVia 2 points ago +2 / -0

IQ matters because it's the best predictor we have of overall life success, even if it's not that great. As long as the measure remains the best predictor of success, we can be convinced that a society in which everyone is treated fairly will result in natural inequality. The controversial thing is the suggestion that part of natural inequality includes a differential along racial lines. For some, that serves as fuel for the idea that one racial group can be superior to the other.

None of this is a problem inherently though, as long as 'equality under the law' is justified on account of the fact that we're all made in the image of God. Atheists can't make that argument though, so they may come to depend on the convenient falsehood that minds of all are a 'blank slate' and that there are no intrinsic influences on cognitive ability. That's how the atheist argues in favor of equality under the law for all races, assuming they argue on principle.

The overwhelming majority of people make arguments derived from social utility, ESPECIALLY the left. In fact, it's the one commonality among all seemingly contradictory positions ever held by the Democrat party. Slavery? Social utility. Industrialization killed the social utility of slavery, and therefore slavery itself. Abortion? Leftists main arguments is that it's better for the life of a woman if she can kill her unborn child, and that the unborn child's life is meaningless.

It's not just leftists though. Social utility is the default motivation for anyone to accept anything. Principles must be cultivated culturally by the influence of fathers. Mothers tend not to do it. "It's better for society" is a notion that manifests organically in every age, leading to radically different outcomes each time it's applied depending on the technological development of the society.

Before abortion, women living with extreme hunger who knew they didn't have the resources to raise a child would give birth only to smash the newborn's head against a stone, or abandon the child with a church.

Wanna know why reasonable people were so quick to adopt 'pronouns' bullshit? Social utility. Upsetting trannies is uncomfortable, and people don't like being uncomfortable. Simple.

Flynn effect has been going on for 3-4 generations, people have been getting higher scores for generatiosn. The increase in mental spatial relations keeps going higher, so the IQ test has been getting harder. A 100 IQ score from 1970 would be a 93 or so in 2019.

Idiocracy is believing the lie that the king was chosen by God to rule over us.

This lie was used for centuries by the ruling elites to morally justify their rule over our ancestors.

It was called “the divine right of kings.”

Eventually, the retarded serfs who believed this lie, believed in their own inferiority, came to their senses, saw the “elites” as the corrupt parasites they were, rejected “the devine right of kings”, and abolished the monarchy.

Our founding fathers were of this stock.

But the parasites did not go away when we abolished the monarchy.

They simply replaced “the divine right of kings” with “the divine right of the cognitive elite”.

They created IQ tests to convince us that they were superior to us and should be allowed to rule us.

And just as before, many of us retarded serfs chose to believe this lie of the parasites.

Consider this: The Rothschild central bankers who are the puppet masters of all western governments are Askenazi Jews. Askenazi Jews have the highest IQ of any group on this planet. THINK about that. Understand what it means.

If you want to understand the real truth about IQ, see, with your own eyes, how this chimpanzee, with 1/3 the brain size of a human, destroys the human on an IQ test. UNDERSTAND WHAT THIS MEANS!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktkjUjcZid0&t=15m42s

Dr. Jordan Peterson says that a chimp will eat a monkey alive with the damn thing still screaming.

This is VITALLY important to our victory over evil.

Please use your brain to think about this.

DDDirka 2 points ago +2 / -0

Jordan Peterson actually explains in an interview over on Odyssee that IQ measurement is the only hard science in the soft science of psychology, and that it is basically repeatable, and a test based on measuring a persons ability to use abstract thought.

This monkey memorization as an example of IQ is not a valid description of IQ at all. It's just memory.

JP went on in a very emotional display of frustration, that the black problem of low IQ is a serious problem he wishes had a solution. This discussion on IQ was explored heavily also by Stefan Molyneaux with numerous experts, and all focused on race and racial violence. It got him banned from YouTube. Too much truth.

1
JesusWept 1 point ago +1 / -0

The emergence of democracies in the 1700-1800s and especially the belief in individual freedom came directly from the Christian truth that all were created by, and loved by, God. This was not effectively expressed or publicized until the Reformation and the growth of literacy and published documents, especially the Bible. This is why the Declaration is worded as it is. Our rights come from God and govt can't take them. IQ, wealth, looks have no bearing on liberty. No one should believe they do.

ascension4humanity -2 points ago +0 / -2

If Jordan Peterson and Stefan Molyneux are correct, then all people with low IQ would be evil moral degenerates and all people with high IQ would be upstanding virtuous citizens.

In science, only a single example is required for a hypothesis to be treated as bullshit. There are millions of examples which disprove this hypothesis.

So, you have to ask yourself, why would they be presenting a hypothesis which is demonstrably false so strenuously? Think about it. The truth is the truth. We saw how ‘the experts” misled us with COVID-19. The expert had an ulterior motive in doing so. What is the ulterior motive of Jordan Peterson and Stefan Molyneux for promoting a hypothesis which is demonstrably untrue?

3
VolareVia 3 points ago +3 / -0

...then all people with low IQ would be evil moral degenerates...

This suggests you watched like 30 seconds of JBP.

JBP talks ALL the time about distributions. Knowing what a distribution is, is mutually exclusive with 'all people' claims.

JBP has admitted that IQ is not a very good predictor of general life success, just the best one we have. Lots of influences in accordance or discordance which help or hurt life success. There are plenty of good predictors of failure though. Criminality is a big one, as is out-of-wedlock childbirth.

In science, only a single example is required for a hypothesis to be treated as bullshit

Only hypotheses like "all X results in Y". These hypotheses are fucking stupid which is why you almost never see them. Modern scientists have the wherewithal to search for models that function in the vast majority of cases, knowing that the model is way of understanding reality, not a description of reality itself. Newtonian physics doesn't always work, but it works in most of the situations you would ever imagine, so that's good enough to keep it around. Aristotlean physics is total nonsense, which is why everyone abandoned it long ago. Speed is not a force.

You're right to be skeptical about people's motivation for promoting what they promote. JBP and Molyneux ARE guilty of this, just not in this instance. This phenomena is absolutely corrupting scienctific institutions, especially as it pertains to COVID. The Lancet, a once very respected journal, for example put out two very influential fraudulent studies bankrolled by Big Pharma.

"Hydoxychloroquine is dangerous, and should not be used to treat Covid 19"

  • Gilead Phamaceuticals, producer of Remdesivir, using 'Lancet' as a front

"Ivermectin is totally ineffective at reducing the symptoms of Covid 19"

  • (I actually don't remember who did this, sorry)

I am pretty sure that I have watched more hours of Jordan Peterson and considered his ideas more deeply than most humans.

Any error in a belief rooted deep in our belief system is going to be deeply uncomfortable to deal with.

However, as Jordan might say “That which we most need will be found in the place we least want to look.”

Jordan’s commitment to genuinely entertain deeply uncomfortable truths is one of the traits that I admire most about the man. Most people are too cowardly to do so. He is not. He is far far far braver than most. I mean that sincerely.

Nevertheless, entertaining the possibility that your entire model of reality is fundamentally flawed, is a terrifying dragon to face for any of us.

If watching the chimpanzee destroy the human in the memory test with your own eyes did not give you pause and make you intensely curious about further exploration, my question would be “why not?”

Re: “distributions” …

Statistics is not thinking.

Statistics is a substitute for thinking.

Statistics is what we use when we want to avoid thinking more deeply.

Why does Jordan want to avoid thinking on this topic?

Genuine scientists are intensely curious and relentless pursuers of truth.

As such they are profoundly unsatisfied with “distributions” as a predictive model for sensory experience and seek a deeper understanding of the phenomenon in order to create models with superior predictive power.

For example: Elon Musk, by contrast, knows that the best predictive models are created by (1) starting with first principles and (2) reasoning up from them to construct a predictive model which accurately predicts sensory experience.

This is called “first principles thinking”.

The chimp vs human on the memory test and the cognitive tradeoff hypothesis which seeks to explain this is a good example of this.

If you want to know the truth, start with this sensory experience and this hypothesis and THINK by asking questions like:

Why do humans share our navigational maps of the world with each other?

How precisely is the human brain different from the chimpanzee brain?

What were the preconditions for the emergence of speech?

Noticing that Broca’s area is connected to the left anterior insula, why do narcissists have less grey matter in the left anterior insula?

The truth is blatantly obvious with “thinking”.

Why do people choose to rely upon “distributions” instead?

I am not straw manning them.

When people want to LIE, they will often make the situation seem more complex than it really is.

If you present a hypothesis that A causes B, and I give you a single example where that is not true, your hypothesis is invalid. Period. End of story. Grow a spine and deal with it.

The correct response to any and all evidence of misprediction is to consider the evidence and seek to refine your model to account for the evidence so that it can correctly predict a wider range of sensory experience without misprediction.

This is what ETHICAL people do.

What ethical people do not do is cling to their wrong hypothesis by clinging to “statistical distributions”.

“Tell the truth or at least don’t lie.”

DDDirka 1 point ago +1 / -0

Such an absolutist argument is absurd on it's face, and the dismissive reasoning of a child. A straw man argument that doesn't even hold yp to common sense, forget the argument already made about what IQ tests represent. IQ tests do not represent morality, they represent the ability to think in the abstract, which you clearly fail at.

If you can't conceive of a future, you only live for the moment, and by only living in the moment, one is unable to evolve. One is unable to defer immediate gratification for future reward. This is easily seen in black culture, behavior, history, etc.

1
ascension4humanity 1 point ago +1 / -0

Re: the ability to defer immediate gratification?

What precisely is the mechanism?

What precisely makes those who excel a deferring immediate gratification from those who do not?

When a human being has a sensory experience which is unpleasant and responds to it by allowing their emotions to overwhelm them and compel them to speak and act unskillfully, AS YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW, is this not precisely the lack of ability to defer immediate gratification which you are referring to?

You are PROJECTING.

You dislike this flaw you have in yourself.

For good reason.

It has probably caused you a lot of pain.

You are absolutely correct to dislike it.

But, rather than dealing with your own flaw, LIKE A MAN, you lash out at other people who also have the same flaw.

This is exactly the kind of behavior which causes you more pain.

You lack the courage to deal with your own inadequacies, so you violate the moral prohibitions further by lashing out at all people of a certain skin color including the innocent.

You are in a downward spiral.

This is exactly the kind of downward spiral that we see in career criminals from the black community.

This trait of weakness has nothing to do with IQ.

People who lack the ability to prevent their mind from being overtaken by their emotions, also lack the ability to think clearly and to discard wrong beliefs in favor of hypotheses which more accurately predict sensory experience.

If you keep going down this path, you are going to end up just like George Floyd.

Learn mindfulness. It will save your life.

Thrasymachus 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yes of course we are all equal and intelligence is a conspiracy, except nobody is talking about some (((banker))) trying to parade his own intelligence around (to wit it's never actually Jews on /pol/ that post Ashkenazi IQ slide threads, it's tranny faggots, and their 'advantage' of 110-115 is minor at best--and probably not worth trading for the endless list of genetic diseases among their demographic).

The real problem is the mental faculty or lack thereof in the dead-eyed jogger who's been in and out of jail 40 times since age eight but regardless is currently in the process of sticking a knife in your ribs because you didn't hand over your iPhone fast enough.

Lecture HIM about how the "elites created IQ tests", you Pollyanna retard.

ascension4humanity 1 point ago +1 / -0

What’s with the “name calling”? “Name calling” is a manifestation of fear. Precisely which idea makes you fearful?

Where did I say that we are all equal? We are not.

I agree that “the dead-eyed jogger who's been in and out of jail 40 times since age eight” is a moral degenerate and his kind should be completely eradicated from society and never allowed to return.

But correlation does not equal causation. His low IQ is not the reason for his degeneracy.

His absence of a conscience is the reason for his degeneracy. This absence of a conscience is caused by the brain physiology which he shares with the Rothschilds.

Importantly, ALL brain physiology is determined by our genes.

A simple genetic test to detect this brain physiology is all that we need to completely eradicate evil from this earth forever.

Is that what makes you fearful?

1
Thrasymachus 1 point ago +1 / -0

Jesus, you're like the fucking Racine guy with your cultish cadence and Reddit spacing. In the event you can even follow your own thinking, a brief recap: you've split intelligence into intelligence vs unspecified brain physiology that results in no conscience, which is said to in turn result directly in counterproductive and/or adverse behavior. I'm afraid it's hardly that simple, (even though people with no internal monologue and no ability to envision even simple objects in their mind should probably all go and get quadruple vaccinated). 'Intelligence' is multifaceted, and I don't mean in a vague unmeasurable Emotional Quotient sort of way, but observable time-horizons and ability to imagine scenarios of varying complexity, and so forth, and those DO correlate strongly to violence and anti-social behavior.

But as for detecting and eradicating those that fail, sounds fine to me, just be careful we don't include people who write posts like you do in the final tally out of supreme annoyance.

“The battle line between good and evil runs to the heart of every man.” Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

Be honest. Are you more strongly attached to (1) eradicating evil or (2) maintaining the Rothschilds’ narrative of “the divine right of the cognitive elite” to rule over the inferior serfs?

Assuming that you are child of God and are more committed to eradicating evil, there are at least two brain physiologies which I am currently aware of which result in the non-emergence of a conscience with which to restrain predatory compulsions. A simple genetic test for the presence of either of these would enable us to completely eradicate these moral degenerates from society. We don’t need to kill them. We just need to keep them away from us.

(1) All psychopaths have exactly the same brain anomaly: smaller and misshapen amygdala + almost no connectivity to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex. This is 100% heritable. The anomaly decreases the intensity of all pain signals. For this reason, they possess the noticeable trait of fearlessness. Their camouflage sucks because of this. They are the predators at the bottom of the social hierarchy because of this.

(2) All narcissists have exactly the same brain anomaly: less grey matter in the left anterior insula. This is 100% heritable. This anomaly hinders their ability to experience affective empathy. Unlike the psychopaths, most of their pain signals are intact. For this reason, they are better camouflaged. The only pain they lack is the pain of guilt.

Although they are better camouflaged than the psychopaths, they are still easy to spot if you know what to look for: They see the world through the lens of "hierarchy". Life is a constant war for them to advance their position in "the social hierarchy" at the expense of others. They are absolutely obsessed with this. It permeates their being, drives every move they make and colors their perception of reality.

And because society has not yet destroyed the social hierarchy (we will), and they are obsessed with it and are unrestrained by conscience, they excel at climbing the hierarchy and taking control of all institutions of society.

This has always been true, but now the teachers don't even have the smart kids' backs. All of the teachers' fawning goes to the "stunning and brave" kids.

And at the resource level, more and more resources are being drained from advanced programs and high-level courses are being dropped altogether because of "racism." So now the gifted kids are even more bored out of their minds and discouraged at school.

Smart kids can also see that in hiring, diversity and wokeness matters more than merit. So why should they work hard to excel if they can't even get a high-paying and/or high-status job in adulthood? (Unless they are also a member of an "oppressed" group, of course.)

Even modern sports heroes are manufactured like pop stars now. The problem isn't that we have some sort of 'sports based society'. Because we really don't have one. The majority of us are fat, out of shape, and sedentary. Arguably by design and because it gets pushed upon us. There are but a handful who are granted special permission, free time and resources to be exceptions. To Skip out on the things destroying the masses so they can enjoy the rare privilege of being coached, properly fed and kept in good shape. For those who make their own way to better health and physical condition in spite of this, I commend you. But I refuse to put manufactured specimens on a pedestal.

Meritocracy got thrown out long ago and now everything is based upon arbitrarily granted titles. There are kids who get special treatment after gaining a 'jock' title. But the bigger problem is just how arbitrary and paid for by parents, teachers, administrators, enablers or handlers, those titles really are. In today's world, there is no longer any searching for genuine, organic talent. There is no longer any real effort to find what our youths are good at so they can then be developed as the person they really are. We intentionally mismatch their life paths, because reasons. The shot callers all want to play god and create, rather than search out and develope.

The extreme is when parents fixate on how to transform their boy into a girl or thier girl into a boy. Just let them be. Help them find what their good at and help them develope it. Stop trying to create monsters.

Schools being focused entirely on propaganda, instead of teaching, likely plays a pretty big part.

Studies have shown children with absolutely NO schooling of any kind preform within a single grade average of public schools.

IQ tests are focused in large part on critical thinking skills, pattern recognition, non numerical math, and some amount of pop quiz knowledge. Things no one is even learning in school anymore.

Jammyjams 9 points ago +9 / -0

Yup. Education is the most important.

You think asian countries are the "smartest" people? No. They go to HOURS upon HOURS of schooling every single day.

You can have a very high IQ kid, teach him crap, there goes his potential.

Our education system is one of the biggest failures in the US, upon all of the others. Who is to blame? Of course, the libtards.

hours and hours of schooling is useless if you don't have the attention span to sit there and listen, capacity to understand, or capability of applying it. teach a class of joggers for 40 hours and a class of asians or whites for 40 hours and see who retains the information. the joggers would probably just get bored shoot your dumb ass and see themselves out

Yea I agree. People are all different. But I used to teach and the method of teaching is the most important. Do I agree with the abusive level of teaching in Asian countries? No. I think kids should have a childhood.

But, the reason why I bring that up is that education is a hallmark in Asian countries. Its importance is never ignored like here in this libtard nation. The cultural implications of the importance of education is the difference maker.

If a student isn't doing well in Asia, those parents get up and talk to the teachers, figure out what the fuck is going on. That shit doesn't happen here with so many libtard irresponsible parents.

Joggers don't think education is that important. Their parents don't give a shit.

Asians, you fuck up in school, you're gunna get fucked up. That's the difference.

idrago01 3 points ago +3 / -0

i think you need to ask why joggers and to a lesser extent other minorities don't value education unlike whites/asians, the issue is genetic not culture or blaming the parents, most simply lack the intellectual capacity for foresight and future planning and can't grasp why you should sacrifice and learn today to improve your position in the future, that's why there is so little importance to education other than at best to just pass to move on the next grade. they just think in terms of instant gratification. the average subsaharan african adult has the raw IQ score of an 11 year old white child

While I do agree that it would be significantly different (i.e. they'd be smarter as a whole), I don't believe in this retarded woke idealism that black people would be just as smart as white or asian people, given the same education/upbringing/environment/etc.

It's very clear to see that as a race, black people are physically more gifted than most of the other races, and to expect that they would be just as smart as all the other races is beyond retarded and racist, if you really think about it. Joggers would be the superior race if that were the case.

To really put this shit to rest (that joggers are just as smart as other races), they need to make several black-only companies and see just how quickly they go bankrupt. No need to do this with countries, as all the African countries are pure and utter shit holes. Wakanda lives only in the minds of kangz.

What made their IQs go up in the first place?

11
Drooperdoo 11 points ago +12 / -1

Selection pressures due to environment. For instance, Europe had a cold environment where food didn't grow all year round. Those who didn't learn to save food, starved. Short-sighted people didn't get to pass on their genes. People with more-developed critical thinking faculties and impulse-control passed on DNA.

In tropical Sub-Saharan African countries, where food grew on trees all year round, not as much thought had to be given to long-term survival. This did not select for long-term thinking.

Likewise, the differences in family-structure created by R versus K breeding patterns.

In Europe, they would only have one or two children and lavish attention on them, imparting education to them. The survival rate was much higher, but they had a smaller population. In Africa, the strategy was to have 50 kids, spend no time with them as you went from impregnating one woman after another. 48 would die due to disease, predators, accidents, etc. With two remaining alive.

Sadly, these population-groups still pursue these same strategies, statistically--even though they're quite unaware that they're subconsciously following patterns set for them since before the Paleolithic.

Long story short: White people are like elephants with single offspring, but with much higher IQs. Africans are like rabbits, with many offspring, but with fatherless homes, less care spent on each child and of much lower IQ.

Two different strategies, resulting from two vastly different environments. Behavioral patterns cultivated over hundreds of thousands of years that you're not going to get rid of in the same of a 250 year-old country like the United States.

  • Footnote: This of course doesn't take into account genetic factors related to crossbreeding. Europeans crossbred with Neanderthal, who imparted freckles, red hair and blue eyes to the European phenotype. Neanderthal also had history's largest cranial capacity. Some studies suggest that up to 20% of the European genome may derive from Neanderthal. By contrast, black people have an almost equal genetic contribution from Homo erectus. One forensic anthropologist on TV that I watched, said, "Homo erectus was basically a glorified chimp. He had a cranial capacity barely larger than a chimp's." Herodotus, in Book IV of "Histories," describes how, even into the modern era, black people didn't have the use of fire and ate their meat raw. Neanderthal, by contrast, was smelting metal 600,000 years ago. In addition, he was making synthetic water-proofing materials with incredibly difficult chemical processes. (Harvard did a study of it.) Neanderthal also had boat-making technology, as inferred by his remains being found on islands in the Mediterranean. Whereas black people never developed this technology. Madagascar had to be colonized by Indonesians from thousands of miles away,. Blacks couldn't reach it, even though it was right off their coast. Long story short: This tech disparity between Europeans and Sub-Saharan Africans is still blatantly on display today.

Your arguments do not stand up to scrutiny.

Selection pressures due to environment. For instance, Europe had a cold environment where food didn't grow all year round.

How do the Americas and Asia fit into your theory? How do Egypt and the Middle East fit into your theory?

In Europe, they would only have one or two children and lavish attention on them, imparting education to them. The survival rate was much higher, but they had a smaller population.

A civilization where families are on average having one to two children can't have any population growth. That's a reproduction rate that's below replacement level. If Europe was having families with primarily one to two children, Europeans would have gone extinct long ago.

No human society is capable of surviving on a 'Elephant based breeding system'. They'd be in a constant state of decline before going extinct due to lack of replacement, let alone expanding in numbers.

Whereas black people never developed this technology

Australian aborigines have a healthy dose of Denisovan. Almost a completely different species, to the point that I think crossbreeding has a high chance of producing fucked up offspring. Look at it this way--we are only like a percent and a half or something different from chimpanzees, DNA-wise, and look how different chimps are from us. Aborigines have 6% Denisovan DNA, and we have 0%. We are very different.

One caveat: a larger brain DOES mean more processing power, but not necessarily more raw intelligence -- some sections of the brain are relegated to stuff like sense filters and other non-intellectual stuff, so larger brains could merely be indicative of things like a stronger sense of smell or better hearing. Of course that doesn't change observable facts like tool use and ceremonial burial and whatnot. I'm just saying that you can't automatically judge intelligence based on a brain's size, or blue whales would be interdimensional time travelers by now.

Hans Rosling [RIP] demonstrated a cultural echo of r/K theory in his supercool presentation on child mortality and family size. In the chart moving through time starting at 2:46 there is definitely correlation but what manner of causation and in what direction?

What he wants to imply is that given [better health care, birth control, both?] as child mortality approaches the bottom-left rectangle, women culturally prefer to have a number of children closer to the Replacement Rate [~2.3 to 3.5]

Dutton argues that the increase in capital punishment that occurred from the medieval period onwards in Europe was essentially eugenic and eucivic (beneficial to the maintenance and development of civilization), as the "most psychopathic young men" were essentially killed and removed from the gene pool before being able to reproduce, which resulted in a positive selection pressure for pro-social traits such as agreeableness, religiosity and impulse control. As he argues that these traits need to be highly represented in the population for higher-level states to grow and maintain themselves, he claims that that execution contributed to Europe's ensuing world dominance and all the technological, cultural and social developments that were associated with this in that period of world history. He asserts that Western societies likely would've entered into a "decline and fall" stage of development before reaching an industrial revolution, like the Romans did, if not for this intense selection pressure for religiosity and other pro-social traits that he argues resulted from execution.

You prevent the bottom 2% from joining the gene pool. Over time, that will create an upward trend.

This used to be the case. Violent criminals were executed rather mercilessly. Mercy was granted towards those who claimed Christianity, repentence, and could "prove it" by reading the passage from the Bible that changed their life and caused them to turn it around. If they couldn't read, they could memorize it and fake it. This would result in clemency.

Those who could not read, and could not memorize, were culled from the community generally before they could sire offspring. This had a eugenic effect for hundreds of generations, leading to peak intellectual output in the late 18th century. We've been on a decline since then.

That doesn't sound like culling based on intelligence, it sounds like culling based on willingness and ability to memorize certain Bible verses.

One doesn't have to be able to read the Bible to memorize verses, and in fact there was a very long period where the the ability to read was irrelevant to the matter, since books were once a rarity and most people couldn't read, and then there's the matter of how until the Reformation the masses weren't really allowed to read the Bible anyway because it was in a language that was only taught to religious leadership.

You are mistaking and confusing the form for the function. The stupidest, lowest IQ can't read, and can't memorize long passages. It doesn't matter what the text is. Culture dictated that it was the Bible that was used.

Premise:

  1. Low IQ results in higher crime rates, and more violent crime.
  2. Violent crime results in capital trials.
  3. Low IQ results in execution due to an inability to fake repentance.

Low-IQ results in death.

And even if Bible was what was used, the fact remains that the Bible was not an easily accessible book to read until Martin Luther translated it so that the masses could read it. Prior to the Reformation, the Bible was not a book that the masses could have read regardless of intelligence.

That's the point. They can't, if they are too stupid to do so. Memory and rote memorization is strongly correlated with general intelligence. If you don't have the mental horsepower in the first place, you simply can't do it.

We're talking about culling the very stupidest people in the population. They are committing violent crimes at young-ish ages, certainly prior to the point of getting married. Attempts to sire children outside of wedlock may well be the capital crime that has them facing the headsman. They aren't breeding prior to their execution.

When you cut out the bottom 2% of the gene pool, it does wonderous things.

Intelligence as a measure of criminal behavior does not stand up to scrutiny.

This is also false. General intelligence is highly inversely correlated with crime rates and criminal behavior, particularly violent crime. This isn't in doubt. Generaly intelligence is also highly correlated with delay of gratification, which is itself strongly inversely correlated with both crime and violent crime.

General intelligence is also strongly heritable, although there is a tendency to revert towards the mean. This is why culling the bottom has a eugenic effect on the population as a whole. It shifts the entire mean, culling the worst of the heritable genetics from breeding true and circulating in the population.

Smart people likewise frequently commit violent crimes both violent and nonviolent.

  1. Outliers do not invalidate a trend. No correlation is perfect.
  2. Please define for me a violent non-violent crime.
  3. Please define "frequently" and "smart" as used in the previous sentence.

Where do I go to learn about this?

The Flynn Effect ceased, about the 1990s, if you look into it. Turns out it doesn't take much in the way of de-worming and calories to boost IQs in a population on average. In ancient days, food was scarce too, and we are adapted to it. Its just hard on growing kids.

To answer your question, it's not so much a question of eugenics, but a question of who is breeding more at a societal level.

That's not really true.

Women have a tighter range of IQ than do men. You get more high-IQ and low-IQ outliers with males, where females tend to clump together more near the mean.

This means you get far fewer retard women, but far fewer genius women too. You do get a lot more genius men, but also a lot of booger-eating-moron men who are good for nothing but cannon fodder and being last when trying to outrun bears.

The upside to this is that you have more women who theoretically aren't so dumb that they can't take care of children, and can choose to mate with men who are smart enough that hopefully they won't have any retard kids. Unfortunately...

Mad_King_Kalak 2 points ago +2 / -0

You can't quantify fucking around with your friends in a field, but it's gotta be a damn ways better all around than being in a dark room in front of a glowing screen wasting away your life for experience points or a new color hat on your stupid fucking character.

I went on vacation the other week and turned my phone off for all of it. No electronics at all. Guess what? My sleep was better, even my digestive system started working better. I can't get away from my phone entirely, but when I get home from work I throw it on the table and don't touch it. I've since read two books and have been more engaged in my projects, my wife, and the kids. I'm sleeping great and overall feel sharper.

Compound that effect over the course of a year. I'll have read dozens of books and generously increased my knowledge on subjects to an extent I would never get from dicking around on the internet. None of the shit we do here day to day raging about politics or the world does anything to make us smarter more well rounded people.

Electronics are poison, change my mind.

I don’t think electronics are inherently bad. It’s how they’re used. I’m normally reading and learning when I’m online. Most people are tuned into commie google bullshit that is designed to fuck with your head and make you stupid and lazy. Electronics can be good or bad but most of the time we would be better off without them.

The problem with reading online is that while it's not as reduced as Twitter posts it's still reduced. Even long form articles barely scratch the surface on any of the subjects they touch. You need to read books to get any sort of true grasp on anything. I also believe that reading words on paper is different from reading words on a screen.

There is probably something to this, beyond mere tongue-in-cheek... B12 (cyanocobalamin) is only from animal products: and it is required for both blood and neuronal development and function.

IQ is a distribution. The average is always 100 by definition. It's literally impossible for the average to decrease because the score is defined by the curve, which is defined by the average on an annual exam. An individual's score can decrease over time, but all this shows is that the average is increasing while the individual stays the same.

It's possible that people are getting dumber, but using IQ score to prove that people are getting dumber over time is like using average GPA to prove that people are getting smarter over time. It's a shit metric and this is bad statistics.

Over reliance on smart tech is what has greatly contributed to the lower average i.q. People are literally failing to form neural pathways for information usage because they can instead, "just Google it."

We have given our minds to media and tech, and look at what it has wrought us. Information is still gatekept by the ruling class. Transparency should have been the norm in the information age. Instead of colonizing space we have tweens posting butt pictures on the internet while boomers run the planet into the ground because their flower power movement has lead to peak degeneracy. Fucking disappointing to say the least.

No, it's because humans are easily influenced.

Did you really think they stopped doing subliminal messaging after drive-in movies went out of fashion?

Get an "influencer", get 20 million bot followers and you can get people to do extremely stupid shit. You see it all the time.

And the subliminal messages too.

Social media, smartphones and access to porn 24/7 also contribute to lower IQ. There is a reason why the TV used to be called the "idiot box".

It's really simple.

  1. Elementary and high schools used to teach to the bottom third of the top half. Now they teach to the top third of the bottom half. They are dumbing down the material by about 15 IQ points.

  2. Mainstreaming retards. If you are my age, you remember the "special class," where all the retards went. Now they are 'mainstreamed,' put in classes with everyone else, and the rest of the class does not progress until the retard 'gets it.'

  3. Third world imports. Import low IQ third world trash, and the national IQ suffers.

  4. Tolerance and integration. Disruptive kids used to get sent to the office for 'the strap,' or 'the paddle,' or whatever corporal punishment. Repeat disruptors got expelled. This no longer happens, and it especially no longer happens to black kids. If we were serious about educating inner city blacks, We'd expel the ones who ruin school for everybody else and put them in some kind of school/prison hybrid.

  5. Wokeness. Every minute spent on global warming, pronouns, or other bullshit is a minute less spent on the three Rs.

One could argue that this is the result of how we're using the internet. I also think that as a civilization advances, its dependency on its technology does, too. After all, you can't have insanely-complex systems and procedures and transfer the knowledge it takes to maintain them in the same time that technology advances as the more complex things get, the fewer qualified people you have who can maintain the systems (also because you need fewer of them to do it due to the technological byproduct that allows automation, etc.) and also pass the needed knowledge on to those expected to maintain the systems tomorrow. All of this also enables a decaying sense of priorities within society as our technology enables conveniences that tend to enable our laziness and abilities to take things for granted.

Not sure where it all goes, but hopefully we'll course-correct before anything catastrophic happens.

The world average IQ has to be 100 by definition. It's mental age over physical age. I hate these graphs. It might be true that people are getting more stupid, but IQ is not the way to track that.

3
Sleepwoker2 3 points ago +3 / -0

Dude, this graph is so much worse than that on so many levels. It extrapolates so much. For one, the x-axis is not consistent, the end draws data out MORE than data in, the start and finish of the y-axis are chosen to give a 'plummet' effect even though the overall known data represents a 3-4% decline over 70 years.

But, based on the reactions, the premise of the article is more than likely true. People are more and more retarded.

In the U.S. it wasn't fully outlawed until 1996, and was used in third world shitholes until 2021.

From the EIA

By 1975, unleaded gasoline was universally available. Effective January 1, 1996, leaded gasoline was banned by the Clean Air Act for use in new vehicles other than aircraft, racing cars, farm equipment, and marine engines.

Where I live, if you wanted leaded you had to purchase aviation fuel. Convenient as all get out (not). Even the race car drivers were buying Av fuel 100 octane. Still available BTW and that's a good thing or we'd see lots of plane crashes.

Given the paucity of available sources, the odds that humans would ingest enough lead to lower their IQ from 1975 onward? Somewhere in the lotto range I suspect. I'd look for more common environmental cues, like shoddy education and countless hours wasted on television.

CnnWillBlackmailYou 1 point ago +1 / -0

Absolutely wrong. There are literally hundreds of studies saying so.

Do you even know what "universally available" means?

0
Crappydatum 0 points ago +1 / -1

There are hundreds of "studies" that claim gender is a fiction.

I know what universally available means, don't you? Furthermore as refineries switched from tetraethyl lead to MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ethylene) additive, it was no longer cost effective to distribute leaded gas. Realize at Most there are three tanks under a Gas Station. One for premium unleaded, one for mid grade and one called unleaded. Still that way today with octane values listed.

Do you know what parts per trillion means?
